Catholic Church of the Beatitudes Marks Its Five-Year Anniversary

A local congregation, Catholic Church of the Beatitudes, served by Roman Catholic Womenpriests celebrated the fifth anniversary of their founding.

You can find them serving the Santa Barbara community through Safe Parking Women, helping with Laundry Love, the Poetic Justice Program of the Los Prietos Boys’ Academy and Catholic Workers in Guadalupe.

They have prepared a religious education program for when children are part of the community. They are on the board of Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice (CLUE) and recently began a monthly Taize Prayer for Peace service on the second Sunday of the month at 8 p.m. at First Congregational Church and a DivorceCare Support Group at 7 p.m. Thursdays, also at First Congregational.

Mass is celebrated at 5:30 p.m. Saturdays at First Congregational Church. All are welcome!

The Beatitudes community is a supporter of A Year Without War founded by Joe White. This Saturday, International Peace Day, the church has invited White to speak at its Mass.  Through its monthly Taize Prayer for Peace service they support AYWW.

The next step toward A Year Without War by 2020 is to have the United Nations recognize the Day the World Outlawed War and celebrate this every year. After the atrocities of World War I, our grandfathers chose to create what they called the Pact of Paris on Aug. 27, 1928 (aka the Kellogg-Briand Pact). This pact outlawed war globally. White is asking the U.N. to make Aug. 27 a Pact of Paris Day.

All are welcome to come to Mass and hear White speak. Click here for more information.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
